Bob, does he make up things you never said and follow you around making you explain them too?
(to wit, claiming I said "I singlehandedly won the cold war", among other things)
On the thread, I would say the number of times I've been moderated for what appeared to be purely partisan reasons in the comments of news articles has been fairly few. It's happened, but I haven't been in there for a couple of years, maybe it's changed.
However on the "off topic" board there was the instance of the thread I started presenting the evidence Joe Wilson was a liar and I (IMO) successfully defended my position as it went to 300 posts. This heinous offense got me banned for "disruptive posting" so I can't say there may not be some truth to what you say.
As has been pointed out it does happen in forums on both sides of the political fence. Consider yourself a superior person if you're spending more time in the arena with challengers than in the one with syncophants.
